● Eranovum has signed the acquisition of three solar plants from Grupo Gransolar in Madrid and Castilla La Mancha with a total capacity of 14.7 MWp.
● Eranovum will develop its innovative Fotolineras at these three sites
● Eranovum aims to reach 9,000 charging points powered by 100% renewable energy in Spain in the next few years.
Madrid, 18 July 2023 – Eranovum, a Spanish group dedicated to accelerating the energy transition, has announced the acquisition of three photovoltaic plant projects from Grupo Gransolar in the Madrid region and Castilla la Mancha.
The three plants, which are in the development phase, have a total installed capacity of 14.7MWp and are expected to be operational by 2025. Together, they will enable an annual production of 30 GWh, which will avoid the emission of around 6,000 tonnes of CO2 per year and is sufficient to supply energy to around 10,000 homes per year. The development of the plants will create around 120 direct jobs.
The company plans to extend through these plants its innovative concept of photovoltaic charging stations, which allows the charging of electric vehicles with 100% renewable energy supplied directly and on a self-consumption basis by Eranovum’s solar plants, with no tolls or additional costs. This is a unique concept as, unlike the electric charging stations, the electric vehicle charging station is connected to the solar photovoltaic plant and has all the necessary power to supply ultra-fast charging to users who need it.
José Luis Aguirre, co-founder and partner of Eranovum, says: “Eranovum’s aim is to accelerate the transition to a new energy era, and solar energy production, which has always been in our DNA, is a key part of this. These new plants will undoubtedly contribute to our goal of building a diversified portfolio to produce clean and competitive energy to meet the energy needs of our electric vehicle charging network.
Alejandro Navas, business development manager for photovoltaic projects at Eranovum, adds: “These are three strategic projects that will undoubtedly contribute to our mission of producing clean and fully renewable energy. Each of the locations has been studied in detail both for its energy generation capacity and for its strategic location next to transport links in order to be able to implement the photovoltaic station concept later on”.
In the words of Alberto Macía, Project Development Director of the Gransolar Group: “Contributing to an initiative like this to promote sustainable mobility encourages us to continue advancing in the development of photovoltaic projects. One of our principles is to establish alliances with companies that are aligned with our idea that there is another way of producing energy that is much more efficient and sustainable and, in this sense, we are fully satisfied with this agreement.
These three plants add to Eranovum’s portfolio of solar photovoltaic plants. The company has a portfolio of three facilities in the province of Cuenca with a total capacity of more than 400 MWp, of which 324 MWp are already operational, making it one of the largest operational facilities in Spain.
